Tag: Long Island Serial Killer
Serial killers have long targeted prostitutes—from Jack the Ripper, an uncaught murderer who terrorized women in late 19th-century London, to the Long Island Serial Killer, an uncaught murderer whose last confirmed victim disappeared in September 2010 after advertising sex work on Craigslist.
